's assume a new set of laws is passed. as quickly as they are passed, election lawyers figure out how to get around them. it is remarkable. it's constantly evolve issue. would i support moving the money back to the candidates. absolutely. i think there has to be a mechanism i worked for two millionaire politicians. i believe there should be a mechanism for rank and file. to be able to raise larger amounts. but i believe putting the money back in the candidate account create more accountability and much more integrity driven process to frame an election. me personally yes. and, you know, does my firm make money off the kinds of campaign. absolutely. from my perspective i think it's better for the country if we went back to that model. >> can i answer? >> i don't know that i agree with the assumption of the question. if you look at what -- [inaudible] look at what super pac actually do and what the advertising does, everyone in here age lot of people in the political times remember the question in political times 101 should the elected representative do what he believes is right or what the co
about what treatments are given. that's explicitly prohibited in the law. but let's go back to what governor romney indicated that under his plan he would be able to cover people with preexisting conditions. well actually, governor, that isn't what your plan does. what your plan does is to duplicate what's already the law which says if you are out of health insurance for three months than you can end up getting continuous coverage and an insurance company can't deny you if it's been under 90 days. but that's already the law. and that doesn't help the millions of people out there with preexisting conditions there's a why reason governor romney set up the plan that he did in massachusetts. it wasn't a government takeover of health care, it was the largest expansion of private insurance. but what it does say is that insurers, you've got to take everybody. now, that also means that you've got more customers. but when governor romney says he'll replace it with something but can't detail how it will be, in fact, replaced and the reason he set up the system he did in massachusetts was beca
is used everyday by t.s.a. officers, border agents and state, local, and federal law enforcements. >> if you're speeding, you get pulled over, they're query that name. and if they're encountering a known or suspected terrorist it will pop up and say "call the terrorist screening center." >> reporter: how often do these encounters happen? >> we're averaging about 55 encounters with known or suspected terrorists every single day. >> reporter: in most cases, the encounters do not produce arrest but provide additional intelligence. >> location of where the guy is going, what he's doing, additional associates that the subject is hanging around. >> reporter: names are frequently added and subtracted, always in secret. healy also overseas the even more critical no-fly list. there are 20,000 people on the no-fly list. about 700 of them are americans. so there are people who live in this country who you have enough concerns about they can't fly? >> yes. >> reporter: the databases are not perfect. some innocent people have been kept off airplanes by mistake. and one person who never made th
, president obama's done a much better job in enforcing the trade laws than we've ever seen before. he's pushed china. he just won three cases. he won a case on pipe to put thousands of people back to work. he won a case of tires that put people back to work. and he just filed one on auto parts. look, mitt romney's talk is cheap. he'll go back to this -- he's working on currency. we're all working on currency. mitt romney will go back to the same paradigm that we had before. signing agreements that are good for wall street but not good for main street. >> even though this tax increase that we're about to see is going to increase taxes for anybody making more than $250,000. >> which tax increases you talking about? >> the fiscal cliff issue as we see the tax cuts expire at year end. >> well, the president said he wants to continue those tax breaks for people earning less than $250,000. it's the republicans that say no, we won't give anybody anything unless the millionaires and billionaires get their tax cut too. they don't need -- they need to pay their fair share. and we -- >> thanks,

regulatory law that president obama signed in 2010. number three is enough who is winning the debate, and number four, big bird. touched off, of course, by mitt romney's pledge to pull federal subsidies for public television. people also wanted to know about the president's health care overhaul known as obama care. as well as the personal stats. and as for romney, his tax cut proposal got lots of hits, as did his bio, and, yet again, big bird. everyone, of course, is talking about the debate. they're also saying that there was a commanding performance by mitt romney. of course, the highlights, the commentary, and the spin, but we'll replay the entire debate from start to finish. we're not talking about talking points. we are talking about the candidates themselves in their own words. if you missed it, if you like to watch it again, decide to see for yourself. here's the first presidential debate between president barack obama and former massachusetts governor mitt romney. >> good evening from the magnus arena at the university of denver in denver, colorado. i welcome you to the first
